which if you haven't seen it before, do nip over to the Facebook group page and feast your eyes on some of the wonderful rosettes folks are making.
It's addictive EPP and well worth having a go at!
So I thought I would make a start on an activity boards for my granddaughter, rather like some I've made for the kids at work
but on this occasion, since she has sight, I don't need to use as many tactile different fabrics.
This mdf board is covered with Velcro accepting fabrics, which means its like the softer side of Velcro, so that you can attach the tackier Velcro side to whatever you want to stick on and take off.
Does that make sense lol ?
I get the fabric which is 110" wide from

It means a child can put on and take off items, and of course they stay put, be they Baa Baa Black Sheep, 5 little ducks or Old MacDonald as above.
My intention is to make characters for the nursery rhymes she's currently singing - thanks to You Tubes various Nursery Rhyme singalong with films - which are a godsend when you want a five minute break, or a quick tiddle believe me !
I have made Old MacDonald as a finger puppet and will make some animals next to go with him.
The back of the board is covered in black, so Twinkle Twinkle Little Star works on the reverse and it will be better for laying letters or numbers on later, for clarity.
I finished another fastenings jacket at work last week again. This one is for a little girl with very poor finger strength so the emphasis was on buttons and zips.
It was my granddaughters 2nd birthday party today and
she got her first car from an auntie!
Her dad's dad opted for being the push power and she was all round well impressed!
She had a cute and tasty cake!
I know it looks like she is giving a finger sign but trust me she wasn't!!
